Members in Action: Redesigning the Delivery System
PeaceHealth Peace Harbor Medical Center – Florence, Ore.
Critical access hospital engages paramedics to improve care through home visits
Through the Peace Harbor’s Mobile Integrated Healthcare program, a dedicated paramedic checks on patients at home for their safety and provides preventive care to reduce their ED visits, avoidable readmissions and ambulance trips. For every dollar spent on the MIH program, the hospital saved $5 in health care costs.
